    Default Injury on head and tail. Should I leave it alone?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey guys, I recently got a juvenile fat-tail and I noticed he has a slight injury on his tail and head. When I first saw him, I thought it was just some stuck shed or calcium power but after trying to wet it with warm water and a q-tip, it didn't go away. It doesn't seem deep and he isnt showing signs of stress. I currently have him on paper towel since he's new and under observation. Should I just leave it alone or should I get some wound care spray or cream? Because he's new and still small, I've been trying to handle him as little as possible until he gets comfortable.

    I would leave him alone and let it heal. If it seems to be getting bigger or looks like there is pus developing, you'd need to take him to a reptile vet.
